One of the highlights of my trip that I️ was looking forward to... but was extremely disappointed. Got to see the big 5 on my safari and Victoria Falls but no sharks on my shark expedition. I️ flew from California for this once in a lifetime opportunity. Got picked up at 4:30am for a 2 hour ride from Cape Town. Arrived at the location and had a quick explanation of the safety instructions and excitement to come of seeing great white sharks. Breakfast was nothing to write home about... didn’t care, wanted to see sharks. We were given our gear before getting on the boat - wet suits and life jacket. Was in the first group to get in the cage with 5 men. While in the cage, one of the men threw up. Actually hoped this would encourage the sharks to come. We stayed in the cage for 15- 20 mins. Nothing. We were the only group to even get in the cage on our boat. It appeared the boat near us was getting some action, so we jumped in the cage. Nothing. There was an expedition immediate after us with room for one person, a guy from our tour went.... stayed in touch with him and found out a month later, he didn’t see sharks on his second try. Found out he and his wife went to Moussel Bay and saw 5 great whites!! At the airport a week later, found out other tourists had the same experience, no Sharks. We were given vouchers to come back again. How likely is it that I️ come back +30 hours via plane for a shark expedition again?? Specially knowing that the man I️ met on my expedition tried again and same results- no Sharks. This was a wasted day..
